  • BASEBALL: Eagle OFer Bickel signs

    Many people may consider the railroad industry as a thing of the past, but not Bethlehem senior Shawn Bickel.

    For as far back as he can remember, Bickel has been enamored by the railroad system.

    Not just being the engineer on a train, but he loves everything about the business.

    It might be working on a track, maintaining signals, or designing the electrical system.

  • PREP SPORTS ROUNDUP: Generals...

    After a pair of recent one-run wins over last year’s 19th District champion and runner-up, Thomas Nelson is staring at a golden opportunity to position itself as the team to beat on the softball scene.

    The Generals (10-5) won for the eighth time in the last nine contests and remained undefeated at 4-0 in district games with Monday’s 3-2 home win over Washington County (11-12, 4-3 dist.), recording a season sweep of the two-time defending district champions.

  • 5th REGION TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS...

    ELIZABETHTOWN — Monday’s opening rounds of the 5th Region Tennis Championships proved a big hurdle for local entrants, as only three of 32 survived into Tuesday’s quarterfinals, and only 11 made it past the first round.

    The girls’ singles draw is where the most noise was made, with seeded players Selena Spencer of Bardstown and Morgan Thompson of Nelson County recorded straight-set wins in their first- and second-round matchups.

  • 5th REGION TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS...

    ELIZABETHTOWN — Nelson County’s Morgan Thompson extended her senior tennis season by at least another week Tuesday, gutting out her 5th Region quarterfinal match against Elizabethtown’s Anastasia Newsome to earn a berth in next week’s state tournament.

    With that win, the Cardinal senior got to achieve a goal that had remained elusive since she took over as Nelson County’s No. 1 girls’ singles player as a middle-schooler.

  • TRACK: Teams close regular...

    Senior Marly Walls captured first place in two events as Nelson County finished fourth in Thursday’s Bardstown Invitational track meet.

    She won the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 16:68 and then was nearly two seconds ahead of runner-up Kamry McFayden in the 300 hurdles with a time of 48.84.

    Walls also tied for second in the high jump and third in the triple jump. Her 33-08 in the triple jump was good enough for a school record.

  • STRAIGHT ARROW: More about our...

    After Hannah had taken her second turkey on Saturday, April 14, and with heavy rain coming in for the next couple of days, Eric and I talked about where to hunt on the next morning.

    We both thought if it was raining hard that a box blind we had built for the girls would be a good choice. It overlooked a big food plot, would be easy to get into and be a dry, comfortable place to hunt. I told Eric to go ahead and hunt it if he wanted to. I could hunt almost every day if I wanted to and really didn’t want to hunt in the rain.
